I managed to score a couple of slabs from a White Oak tree that had been cut down for about a year. The two slabs are approx 16 inches across x 2 inches thick.
My goal is to make lazy Susans out of them. They are pretty even so a few minutes with the belt sander should be all that is needed.
My question is what should I do about the newly fresh cuts? I have seen some insect holes so should I treat the wood in some sort of way or ….
I guess my plan is to simply give them a good coating of dewaxed shellac and call it a done deal.
I also have some smaller pieces to make candle holders and holders for salt and pepper, etc.
Your thoughts appreciated. I have never dealt with wood straight off the vine! :-)
